Ex Libris!

I’m so excited for a NEW workshop!!  It’s a bit different than my usual classes, but every bit as fun and rewarding.

Learn how to design, create, and print your own Ex Libris bookplate! In this workshop students will learn basic relief printing techniques, using 3″ x 3″ softoleum blocks and lino cutting tools. Simple designs will be encouraged for beginners. Then students will print their blocks in a small edition of 10, in one colour, creating the perfect adornment for their book collection!

When: Sunday March 25, 2018. 10am – 5pm
Where: Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild, 180 Shaw St., Unit 102, Toronto.

Road Trip to Guelph

Look at these beautiful hand bound, hand painted journals!  This is what students made at Sunday’s workshop at the Guelph School of Art; Painted Longstitch/Linkstitch journals.  If you’ve never been, this is a gorgeous, light filled studio on the 3rd floor of Wyndham Art Supplies in the heart of Guelph.
